Aurora Lions host Candy Day Oct. 12
Aurora Noon Lions Club volunteers will offer Tootsie Pops for donations during annual Illinois Lions Candy Day Friday, Oct. 12, at Jewel Foods, 1952 W. Galena Blvd. in Aurora.
Donations support local Lions projects and services for visually and hearing-impaired persons. Local services include vision and hearing screenings, hearing aids, eyeglasses through VNA Healthcare Aurora and other services.
Rodrigo "Bobby" Menendez, Aurora Noon Lions president, said, "Please consider helping by donating to Lions volunteers.
"Any donation made, whether big or small, is greatly appreciated. As a thank you, donors will receive a Tootsie Pop candy. We look forward to seeing you on Oct. 12, " Menendez said.
Illinois Lions Candy Day is perhaps the greatest statewide fundraising activity exclusively benefiting sight, hearing and handicapped individuals in Illinois; Illinois Lions Clubs work together to ensure success and benefits; Lions have directed their Lions of Illinois Foundation to provide extensive services, programs and grants, like award-winning Camp Lions, Mobile Retinal Unit, Mobile Hearing Unit, Low Vision Program and design for research and much more.
